Lists are for sissies

CVS Pharmacy - Sign Restoration

On the way home from work tonight, all I had to do was buy my Julius Meinl coffee, and then stop by the pharmacy for some toothpaste and make-up remover wipes.

So explain to me how I managed to get those things PLUS shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, face moisturiser, cotton balls, chewing gum, some sort of body spritz that purports to smell like mandarins, and a pack of stick-on fingernails.

You think I mention this because I feel guilty? Hell no. I'm as pleased as punch with my efforts! I love shopping with no tangible list to restrain me. I love wandering the aisles, grabbing and hurling things I simply don't need into the shopping basket.

And I can be smug about all this because I smell like mandarins and you don't.

Gaarbi - I am already feeling nervous about you and stick on fingernails. What a combination!!

Gab, I remember a certain someone trying to get a staple out of a piece of paper. The staple got stuck on their index finger. Then with their other index finger they tried to remove the staple and managed to get BOTH index fingers stuck to the staple. Their teacher had to help them and was last seen wearing a bandaid to stop the bleeding.

Now, you want to play with stick on nails and nail glue?!

Please ask Lexie to help you and Glamah Girl to supervise.

Ahhhh, stick on nails. The mind boggles. One on the end of the nose (becoz there was an itch that needed scratching - and thank G it was only the end of the nose that was itchy), little fingers stuck to thumbs (becoz that's what glue does), the one good one was stuck on upside down and to the wrong finger ..... not only get Lexie to help BUT also have 911 on standby.

In fact, have Glamah on standby too.

I know nothing about those stick on things( except they are bad for the nail bed and my few attempts were disaters). I saw someone with stick on french manicured toenails once.Ewww! Go to a manicurist and do it right. The diffrence will be noticed by all.As for smelling like a orange your just joing to attract some weirdo that will want to 'Drink you up'. Be careful.
